Today is the Feast of Saint Thérèse de Lisieux who is known as “The Little Flower.” So how better to celebrate her than with flowers and a few words from her, one of the three women doctors of the Church.
The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.
― St. Thérèse de Lisieux

Thought this was fit for today and has great information.
Thank you for reblogging. Right now I am in Tijuana at a mission of The Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Peace, Casa de los Pobres. We return to the states tomorrow. I am so glad you enjoyed the post! Blessings.
It saved me … was a little busy and got behind. Thanks and God Bless!
I love the story of Therese – read if often and the quote above – is the very essence that is her (to me anyway). I did not know it was her feast day but thats ok it is in America!!!
Hi Keith. Well them, if it on another day down under, you can celebrate twice!
